Installing trim around rounded corners is much less complicated than it seems, thanks to factory-made corner blocks. Instead of manipulating flat pieces of trim to cap a rounded corner, place a rounded corner cap as a transition between the flat trim on the adjoining walls. Corner blocks are available in many standard styles of baseboard trim. If you can't find a rounded corner block that matches the grooves on your trim, use a corner block with no grooves that is thicker than the rest of your trim. It will stand out, creating an attractive contrast.
Things You'll Need
- Flat trim
- Construction adhesive
- Yellow glue
- Trim nails
Spread construction adhesive on the back of your corner piece and place it in the corner.
Apply yellow glue to the ends of the trim that will butt against the sides of the rounded corner trim.
Place the trim next to the rounded corner piece and reposition the corner block if necessary.
Nail the flat trim in place, using a hammer and trim nails. The corner piece doesn't need to be nailed.
